Cross in group's crosshairs

In his recent cover story for Newsweek, “The Forgotten Jesus” Andrew Sullivan admits that he believes “in Jesus’ divinity and resurrection.” Sullivan relies heavily on the faith underlying this belief, causing him to make some critical errors that must be addressed. First, Sullivan claims that there exists a “purest, simplest, apolitical Christianity, purged of the agendas of those who had sought to use Jesus to advance their own power decades and centuries after Jesus’ death,” to which readers can return. Second, Sullivan wants readers to follow the simple messages of Jesus and not organized religion. Third, Sullivan recruits Thomas Jefferson for his cause. Finally, Sullivan seeks to satisfy the “thirst for God” and avers that “something inside telling us we need radical spiritual change” with faith.

What I Learned at the Reason Rally

FFRF knows how to put together a table

The FFRF staff, and particularly Jackie Douglas and Katie Daniel, know how to set up a table that draws a crowd. The FFRF table was beautiful. We had tons of free rally signs, stickers, debaptismal certificates, bookmarks, Freethought Todays, and so much more. Our table was constantly swamped. Behind our table stood huge backdrops featuring some of FFRF’s most successful billboards such as “Imagine No Religion,” “In Reason We Trust,” and our newest, “This is what an atheist looks like.” The billboard is part of our Out of the Closet campaign. FFRF is has T-shirts with the “This is what an atheist looks like” slogan, yours truly wore one that day. A big reason for the popularity of our table was the “This is what an atheist looks like” photo booth, where people could pose behind hanging banner with the “this is what an atheist looks like” slogan and poke their heads through a framed hole. Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of attendees had their photo snapped behind our newest motto, including Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor; The Friendly Atheist, Hemant Mehta; Todd Stiefel of the Stiefel Freethought Foundation who gave $250,000 to help put on the Reason Rally (Thanks Todd!); and even Waldo of Where's Waldo frame.

Anthony Comstock lives

It is outlandish that in the 21st century, women are being forced to re-defend the long-won right of contraception. The right to contraception, first secured as a constitutional right of privacy by the Supreme Court in a 1965 decree, Griswold v. Connecticut, was a done deal.
